After cleaning up from our first winter storm it was time for some service. Changed all fluids and filters. Changed the front axle lube. Grease. Gave the underside a good looking over and found nothing out of the ordinary!
Even with implements attached, the 4 post lift sure makes life easier for servicing!!

We spent the day cleaning up part of what was logged at our place.
I skidded the last 26 foot pine log out and cut up the last large Hemlock but end of the tree.
Surprised how big a log that the B2650 would move.
This project give me an excuse to buy a grapple lots of logs need to be cleaned up

Cleaned up a big hickory that blew down last Saturday. About 32" DBH. Took about 6 hours. I tried to stand it back up and flop over the opposite way but it wasn't happening. I stood it up and cut it about 10" above ground level. Tractor picked up the 8 foot logs with little effort!

Heavy winds ripped a large limb off a huge Live Oak on the property, so after cutting up this winters’ firewood (2-1/2 face cords) I decided to try to save a section of the main limb which measures 20” by 10’…probably weighs close to 1400 lbs…. Lifted it slightly off the ground with the Forks, sawed a 10-ft section of it and hauled it a mile back to the house and up a 30-degree grade for 100yds. Here’s a video coming up the grade in Lo-3rd @1400 rpm and a pic of it after getting it to the front yard: (Now that I’ve got it there…I have no idea what I’m going to do with it…I don’t need it for firewood.)

Was clearing out one of the houses for all over interior paint and flooring renovation. Took the trailer mover off the 3 point, put on the box blade for ballast, and that freed up the 80” x 36” dolly occupied by the box scrape when it isn’t on the tractor so we could use it to move this pillow into storage.

Of course we also used the dolly for a few other things like moving a couple of couches and this upright piano.

The Kubota made moving quite a few things much easier.

Nothing moved far. Either to the house 60’ away or the drive in basement of the house it came from.

That's an eclectic musical ensemble there, NCL, with the Ford model A/T rear axle housing for a piano stool!! :)

The front legs on the piano are pretty spindly so a little cribbing was in order. An old 100 ton railroad screw jack inherited from some long ago relative was just the right height run all the way down to 24”. A 2x4 spread the force and kept the jack from scarring the piano.

I was removing some trees from my pasture when I noticed this Locust thorn in my right front tractor tire. There was only 1/2” of the thorn showing. I pulled the thorn out & it sounded like releasing an air chuck. A small amount of the Liquid Tube came out, but no bubbles. It appears to have sealed the hole. I’ll find out for sure tomorrow. The sharp end is coated in the Liquid Tube. 🤞🤞🤞

Removed the rotary cutter for the season and installed my rear blade for the winter. This gave me some initiative to grade the gravel driveway and road that had gotten beat up over the long summer rainy season.

Saturday, I ran the G1800/mower around the yard just as the remnants of TS Nicole started coming through to blow off the leaves back into the woods. Now that all the leaves are off the trees, that should do it for the mowing season. Yesterday, I R&Red the deck, so that I could tip it up and thoroughly wash any residue from the bottom side. It all slid right off, with very little effort due to it soaking all night.

On the list for PM in the off-season is installing new PTO belts on the front of the engine. They've been slipping some on PTO engagement and are probably the factory originals. Also need to figure out how to increase the friction hold on the throttle lever. It gradually slips back down to idle. Annoying to have to hold it in place...

Another day at the farm. Dad decided that he wanted to open up the old corn crib that we hadn't been in since either 1998 or 2001, there was a debate on when we were last in it. anyway, we opened it up and found some stuff.

Chainsaw, mower, well pump, air compressor, table saw, miter saw, old stove, bench grinder, to list a gew of the things we found. So, we worked on cleaning it out.

Then our neighbor came over. His wife told him he needed to get out of the house and find something to do. We put him to work digging up stumps.

We went over to the farm house and found a large tree branch had come down.

In the process of cleaning things up, found a drag harrow that no one knew was there. Of course my tire was the one that found it. Ended up at the shop. They patched it, but made no promise it would hold long term. Nice big cut in it. So, I guess a new tire will be in my future.

I did pretty much the same. After I serviced and mounted the snow blower on the 3pt the fel was used to back blade and trim out part of my gravel driveway.
I had another triaxle load of 3/4 process delivered a few months ago. Although it has held up very well there were a couple of undulations I wanted to smooth out before I ended up turning the blower into an earth mover when it snows.

1st measurable snow in SW MI. Drives and roads not bad, plowing is slow as I have to stay off lawns this time of year. Radio in cab sure is nice.

The long wait on my EA Wicked 55 finally came to an end on Wed. 4 months to the week since ordering it. All I had time to do was unload it from the delivery truck and put it up for the night. I was too busy at work to do anything with it on Thurs and it rained cats + dogs on Fri.

With the rains + high winds another dead pine came down so it was clean up time on Sat. It was a good chance to try it out and it worked so much faster and easier then the old way of using the forks.

I got rid of some of the brush the previous owner left behind. And there's a LOT where that came from.

One of the reasons I got the grapple. Such a handy gadget when dealing with brush! 🙂
I couldn't imagine not having a grapple now that I've used one, especially with my sawmill. It stays on the tractor 95% of the time.

Fabricated a bucket level indicator. Cause the sticker from the factory just don't get it.
I may be outing myself as an unskilled bucket operator, but a similar bucket level indicator, which is the OEM option for mine, has greatly improved my results running the bucket. If I ran the bucket 8 hours a day 5 days a week probably wouldn’t need it but I run the grapple (can see the leading edge on it) and forks (have to stand to see them but I know the offset on the level indicator for the forks) more than the bucket, so being able to cut to the bottom of a pile of rock without digging a hole in the ground below the rock and contaminating them with dirt is actually a big deal to me. OEM for mine was only $50 when I bought it and it was definitely money well spent.

Definitely worth it. I would have purchased one but, I just like to make stuff.
